    Whaddya think guys? The sky at f/22. Should I clean the crap off my sensor? (K10D ~1 year old) I don't have a blower of my own, but I could probably borrow one.

    for a one year old camera you don't have a lot of sensor dust i must say.

    if the dust bothers you: clean it. otherwise leave it.

    Got to say, I'd get it cleaned. They are quite distracting.

    I mean it's up to you, but that would drive me insane, plus I wouldn't want to have to edit those out of every photo. Save yourself some time and headache and get it cleaned.

    Blowers don't cost much, and if that takes care of it, then why not?

    Get rid of all those white spots. They look like water stains.

    Clean it.

    At least I would do that in a heart beat.

    I paid $10 for my rocket blower and I use it a couple times a week (for general stuff, not just sensor cleaning). Damn good investment, everyone should have one.

    I think it's the filter I'm using. I'm going to change it out before I travel.
    Thanks! I'll look through it do anything.
    Next Amazon purchase, that's going to be in there...
